Product of the Week - Beauty Works West - CLEANSE

OK - I've made my feelings clear on cleansing wipes in the past. Strong feelings. However, if someone takes the initiative to take something and do it really well - I'll always pay attention.

Beauty Works West is a gorgeous medispa in Notting Hill and where I happen to have popped for a pedicure this week (which was BLOODY AMAZING by the way). It's the kind of place where as a therapist, it ticks every box - clean, crisp, comforting, luxurious and most importantly, great staff - from the receptionists to the therapists themselves. Anyway, I digress.

Paying at the till I saw these on the side and reading the pack out of the corner of my eye instinctively picked them up. Why? I confess to keeping wipes in my bag through the whole of the Summer - when you've got small children they are a must-have - and refusing to put synthetic, alcohol-laden crap all over my babies faces I have struggled to find some I was happy with.

So bearing that in mind - this is what I read at the till:
  • Soil Association Emblem
  • organic cotton
  • organic aloe vera
  • organic pomegranate
  • colour and fragrance free
  • paraben free
  • not tested on animals
  • no harsh or synthetic materials
  • no synthetic laureth sulphate
  • no formaldehyde
You can see why I picked them up. So my question is: If wipes can be done in this way - why isn't everyone doing them? Beauty Works West - I salute you.

CLEANSE cleansing cloths are priced at £6.99 and are available here.

And wanting to share the love - Beauty Works West have offered 5 packets of CLEANSE to BM readers. See? Told you they were nice peeps. Especially after seeing what I have previously said about wipes on this blog! (That still stands by the way if you're talking about something that costs a quid from a chemist)

As before, just leave your twitter id or email in the comments below. And try them. They're lush.

  3. If you recommend them C, I am up for it - you could recommend eating dust as a way of improving my skin and I would do it, I would. Jan x

  4. Wipes that aren't hideously drying or full of nasties - this i have to try!

  5. i do admit to using wipes, i use them to take off the worst of my face before cleansing, or in the summer when im super hot to freshen up... eeekkk sont be mad. these sound great though :D

  8. It is a shame that everybody doesnt do wipes like this, defo wanna try them!

  9. That's amazing, I always want to try so many things from BBW but I just haven't had the chance yet. I am always trying different wipes (I can't help it, they're great pre-cleaning to get the first layer of makeup off! Or just general grossness in the summer) but they are very drying or irritate my sensitive skin. Or they smell TERRIBLE! I love the organic aspect of these!

  10. Blimey at last! My 10 year old has definitely reached a stage where a skincare routine is a must now, but seems to have some sort of aversion to personal hygine. Eugh. These would be the perfect introduction to the concept of actually taking care of skin :)


  11. Wow, I am intrigued!

  12. These sound wonderful since I do use wipes at times (mainly when it's hot) so wipes that don't damage my skin or my daughters (10 and just starting to realise the joy of makeup) would be a dream

  13. I'd love to try them I confess to using wipes to remove the majority of my make up followed by a micellar cleanser. If Mrs H approves then who am I to argue?
